Llyr's feedback about Amanda (Beginner Mandarin tuition near Welling)
I started learning Mandarin Chinese with Amanda a couple of months ago. I had previously been learning Japanese for years on and off. Compound Kanji literally killed my love for that language so I was very very apprehensive about trying a new language with a character system as well. I emailed around 10 or so tutors and have no clue why I picked her when I came on to this site but it was her response to my email that piqued my interest. She answered and advised on all my questions and how I wanted to approach this. In comparison to the tutors I've had privately and at school she has surpassed all of them! She is incredibly knowledgeable about the language. The main concern with Mandarin that is prolific, is that it is one of the most difficult languages to learn. Not just because of the character system but mainly because of the tonal system. In our first lesson she crushed this belief in to oblivion along with my concerns. She broke down the basics of the language (compared to English and Japanese) and by the end of it we came to the conclusion that Mandarin was actually EASIER than Japanese! Amanda is also able and willing to tailor the lessons to the students needs. Most tutors deliver by a certain method they have and do not deviate. She can and will adapt on the fly and you won't even realise it until you've finished the lesson. For me, I'm a very technical person. If you tell me "this means… " I will stop and ask you "WHY?" And if you can't answer that methodically… I'm not coming back. Amanda can and will always stop the lesson to answer your "why". Her accent is pretty flawless too, due to her studies, her time spent living in China and her job… this too shows in her lessons. She will always correct you immediately which is really good, meaning that you will not develope bad habits early on which would be difficult to correct years down the line. Most of all, Amanda is funny as . I find myself frequently recalling specifics of the language because I have remembered something that she said in relation to it, which I found humourous. It sounds bizarre but it's essentially mnemonics… But without the ludicrous nature! It's such a relaxed setting which really helps you learn. Not only this but she is beyond dedicated to her teaching. A fantastic example of this was when I asked her if it would be possible to test me on what I had learnt over the first three lessons. On the same day I emailed her she had gotten back to me with a test she had created! Not only does she teach you, she helps you understand the language… The reasons why and every time I finish the lesson I feel an improvement and continued motivation. She is obviously passionate about the language and I highly recommend Amanda as a teacher. You will not be disappointed at all!

Debbie's feedback about Melanie (Intermediate Spanish tuition near Welling)
Melanie has already built a great rapour with my daughter and is working with her to build up her confidence in speaking / writing spanish. She is always on time and my daughter is enjoying the extra tutoring. As only 2 tutor sessions have taken place it is a little too early to mark as excellent.
